    In the Spirit of Sankofa,


    If you are able to go back far enough, your deep ancestry will show Black, Tom; this is true of all so-called White people.



    Tom Jones Is Getting His DNA Tested To See If He Has ‘Black Ancestors


    Sir Tom Jones has revealed that he wants to get his DNA tested to find out if he has any black ancestors, with the music legend admitting that he has “always wondered” if he is mixed race.

    The 75-year-old is keen to get the test done in the near future so that he can gain a better understanding of his heritage.

    Speaking to Times magazine, the star explained: “A lot of people still think I’m black. When I first came to America, people who had heard me sing on the radio would be surprised that I was white when they saw me.

    Because of my hair, a lot of black people still tell me that I’m just passing as white.”

    Thanks ... Correct, he may not be Black and isn't considered to be Black by society. But, here's one thing we know, no Pink Person (Caucasian) escapes the deep ancestral component connecting them to the Original People (Africans).

    In other words, the biology of Whites doesn't stand alone or apart from the single nature of the origin of man, which traces back to African people, not European, by today's standard knowledge.
